Want to step out of the normal “hum drum” of life for a while. Why not journey to Portland, Victoria’s whale watching capital for one of life’s classic experiences.
Located on the Great Ocean Rd, Portland is ideal to observe the majestic Southern Right Whales on their annual migration.
Annesley House is simply the finest Portland accommodation on offer. Our apartments are not your typical hotel suites, but provide Portland accommodation of a superior nature. You will be impressed by our serviced apartment’s elegance, charm & sheer space.
Annesley House was built in 1878 in Portland, the oldest town in Victoria, Australia. Originally a doctor’s surgery and private residence, we have meticulously restored this mansion to its former grandeur. It now provides some of the finest accommodation on the Great Ocean Rd.
Portland has survived and thrived through federation, two world wars and economic hardship. Like the town itself, Annesley House has witnessed changes in Victoria across three centuries and is still standing to offer you that classic stay in Portland.
When we started restoring Annesley House, our guiding principle was simply to ‘let Annesley tell its own story.’ We wanted to combine the rich history of the mansion and the town itself & yet provide you with the finest Portland accommodation on offer. Our greatest wish continues to be that the story of Annesley House continues through the memories of your classic stay in Portland!
